Jeff stop reading now, because Princess has worked very hard on this Father’s Day present and is very excited to give it to you.  I don’t want to spoil her surprise……




Okay, I’m trusting he’s stopped reading.  Jeff doesn’t suffer from the curiosity disease as much as I do.  So now I can tell you all about her Father’s Day present she made.

Over at Dating Divas they had a post yesterday to make a date jar for you kids (I highly recommend this site for date night ideas), and I loved the idea, but wanted it to be more personal with Princess creating the look of it.


I loved the idea, and printed off their printable with a list of ideas to do together.  I originally was going to have her write out some, but she was in a get moving mood, and wanted to move on, so I just used their ideas.

First get an empty glass jar (we use Laura Scudder’s Peaut Butter, so we get lots and lots of empty jars).  Peel all of the paper off of it.  Soaking the jar in hot water helps the paper come off faster.

Then find some cute scrapbooking paper and trace the lid (I did that part).  Let your kid cut out and glue the paper on top of the jar.

Then start cutting out all of the fun ideas to do or write your ideas down and cut it all out.  I read some of the ideas to Princess and she is so excited by it.

Cut out a square for the label, and a smaller square of plain typing paper to write what the jar is on (no pictures because she got it all done before I got one).


Then act like your Daddy drawing an idea out to do together.  She loved acting it out a bunch of times, and that really cracked me up.

Had to pop back in and add, I LOVE that Princess spelled daughter wrong, and think it’s adorable.

  1. I love this idea, it’s very sweet. Though we’d really have to spread the daughter date nights out over the year, or I’d never have a husband home.

  2. What a cute idea. I wonder what Princess thoughts on daughter-father date are 🙂

  3. What a perfect present! I might help Sammy make a fun outing jar of things to do with just Tim!

  4. That is a really sweet present, Princess, and I am sure you and your Daddy are going to have wonderful times together.
